Here's an idea... Why not have two models, the current design and one that is a bit larger with a viewfinder? You know, let the consumer choose! Revolutionary! ;)

If the rumors are true the viewfinder version will be announced and released this year.

I don't think Canon are likely to address the viewfinder problem, but it would be nice to have the option to turn off the touch sensitive LCD, which I guess they could do with a firmware update.

In the menu on the tab of the wrench with three (3) dots, the "Touch Control" has standard and sensitive. Make sure it's set to standard!

It is, and it's still way too sensitive.

In the standard setting I find the touch control sensitive but not too sensitive. I love the way one can move the focus points arond the screen in an instant.

I agree, changing the focus point by just touching the screen is a great feature, and changing other settings similarly is also good. However, a few times I have had it change settings by itself though, which is a pain if I don't notice. Probably the worse case is the 'touch screen to take a photo' feature turning itself back on and the camera then either taking photos all by itself or it taking one when I touch the screen to change focus points, not realising that the feature has been turned on.

Guys....no fighting please.

There are many reasons for buying, or not buying any camera that's currently on the market. Discussing these reasons is a valid thing to do, and I'm happy to read about the "competition".

But judging someone's character is a big no no!
OK?

And don't forget that if you own a Canon dSLR and a handful of lenses, then adding the current, or a future M-series body+adapter gives you options that are unavailable if you move to a whole different manufacturer.

This, to me, is the main "point" of looking at the EOS-M.

Cheers for now,

Simon

Your post blow some trolling posts out.... :D *ThumbUP*

Canon had nothing to do with the mockup. The next M will look nothing like this very ugly mockup.

I finally loaded Magic Lantern and it really adds some life to the already fun to use M.
Using the M's zoom with AF is a great way to help the speed of the AF by reducing the area it has to focus on. But, it is kind of a pain to frame the shot, move the focus point, and then hit the magnify button. The magic zoom feature on Magic Lantern makes this easy. You can set it to zoom at the shutter half-press and the AF is quick and accurate. It also has focus peaking which is awesome for MF.

Now that is something that will push me over the edge to trading my Panny 4/3 for the M. I love using my old MF lenses with the little camera and focus peaking would be great.

I'll be switching. I'm selling my OM-D and lenses to help buy a house. Eventually I'll end up with an EOS-M when I save some cash up and I already have Canon lenses to use. I liked the OM-D a lot, but this makes more financial sense to me right now.


My village called. I was told that they missed me.

Speedotron users, untie!

at that price, it would be a spectacular replacement for our S95

I bought one for my wife a month ago with the 22, 18-55 and flash. It's an amazing camera for the money. I'm seriously thinking of getting one for myself. It's built better than most dslrs up to $1000 as well.
